Valentine’s Day Cookie Wreath with Woodpeckers Crafts

Aside from Christmas, Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday to craft for. Not just because my favorite color is pink, but the nature of Valentine’s Day lends itself to adorable handmade gifts and decorations. When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of handcrafted decorations, pink and red color combos, and sweet treats. Today I want to bring you a really charming Valentine’s Day wreath that combines all of those Valentine’s Day elements. I am so excited to partner with Woodpeckers Crafts to bring you a Valentine’s Day Cookie Wreath.

Amongst our busy-seasons To Do list, was a well deserved farewell party for one of our beloved employees (read: family members) here at Woodpeckers Crafts. We never like to say goodbye, but if we must – there will be a party. Or more specifically, a party board. If there’s anything we have plenty of, it’s beautiful wooden boards in different shapes and sizes!

DIY Vase Craft Using Wooden Rings, Pretty Pottery Style

“Floral decor. Make me floral decor!”
That was the request from a trend-conscious member of our creative team, last time I took home a batch of wooden products to play around with.

I happen to agree that wood and flowers are the perfect pair, (and I loved the results of our floral wreath project) so I said, “Okay Bayla, I will make you floral decor!”

Pumpkin Truck Stand with Woodpeckers Crafts

Fall is almost here, and I am so excited! To me Fall means campfires, the fresh smell of apples, beautiful falling leaves, and (my favorite) pumpkin patches! The Fall wooden décor lineup at Woodpeckers Crafts brings me the same amount of excitement. I was so inspired by their new Pumpkin Chunky and their Wood Pumpkin Truck Cutout that I had to make a Pumpkin Truck Stand vignette to celebrate my love for Fall pumpkin patches.
